A satisfied reader writes in Dear Editor,

I came across your magazine in a church, and think it is brilliant. I am no longer homeless - for the moment - but struggle in my home. I often go and give what I can afford to people on the streets, some clothes or food if I have it. But I know I am not far away from being homeless again.

I think you are doing fantastic work - most people look down on homeless people, and I often get bad response if I tell people what it was like for me. I was on the Strand and the Bull ring, which is now the Imax cinema, and many hostels. If there is anything I could do then please tell me, but at present I attend a psychiatric nurse for bipolar disorder.

I wish you and the magazine every success.
